Bordered by Pico, Olympic, Western, and Crenshaw, Country Club Park was developed between 1910 and 1930 on the site of what was originally the Los Angeles Golf Club.

Designated an Historic Preservation Overlay Zone in 2010, the neighborhood is a treasure trove of outstanding period-revival architecture by such illustrious architects as Alfred Rosenheim, G. Lawrence Stimson, and Elmer Grey, who designed this stately English Revival-style residence on the corner of St. Andrews Place and Country Club Drive in 1924.

Making its first appearance on the market in six decades, the five-bedroom home hasn’t exactly been trapped in amber—along with upgraded electrical, plumbing, and HVAC systems, it sports a remodeled kitchen and new bathrooms.

That said, there are still plenty of fantastic original details left intact, including leaded glass windows and ornate wrought iron on the grand curving staircase, sumptuous coffered wood and plaster work, glass doorknobs, beamed ceilings, Batchelder tile, and a show-stopping living room fireplace.

On a .38-acre lot with a detached two-car garage, guest apartment, covered patio, and expansive lawn, the property is asking $1.899 million.
